A nonprofit group in Montgomery County has released some interesting results from a year-long look at homelessness in that area.
From May 2017 to April of this year, street teams from Bethesda Cares made contact with 89 homeless people in Silver Spring.
At that period’s end, 26 of those people had been put into permanent housing. The county recently ended veteran homelessness and is now trying to end chronic homelessness.
Bethesda cares executive director John Mendez says that the real battle to save lives actually takes place in the chambers of the county council as each years budget is crafted.
